a new doggie
Okay let me explain, one of the guy's that currently works for Darren is getting out of the navy and leaving at the end of this month. He lives in Austin and has agreed to put 2 dogs on his orders this allowing him him to take back 2 dogs currently in foster care back to the states for adoption. Sadly we don't want him to take 2 dogs back and place them in a no kill shelter (although that is alot better than most situations here). We currently have some fosters that are up for adoption if anybody is interested.
Gidget the female Rottie that was practically given to us by the breeder because she was the runt and on the short side for a Rotti can go to a great new home if the right home is available.
Ajax the one we call our problem foster is also up for adoption, now don't let my phrasing scare you, he does great with other dogs and cats, we have noticed that if he is a smaller dog environment he does extremely well, and because of his breeding background it is in his nature to "herd" and that is what he does here with us, as we have so many large dog's and it does cause some problems. He is an ultimate sweetheart and yes we would keep him if we can find the right home for Gidget and Reagan. Reagan is the German Shephard that was found on one of the bases here wearing american dog tags that weren't his (he was dumped).
We don't want to get rid of Gidget sort of speaking, however with the circumstances here and us having to move, etc...we feel if we can limit the number of dogs we plan on keeping and returning back to the states with the less problems we could face in the future. I say problems because of what we have been dealing with around here with our current neighbors. Now again please don't get me wrong, my dog's are not of any problem to me, it is just how some Italians are, and we want to give a good life for the one's we have and hope to find great homes for the one's we have decided to part with
If we can find a home for Reagan and Gidget than yes we should be able to keep Ajax (as we feel he will be harder to adopt out), however if we can't adopt out Gidget than we have to push to find a home for Ajax.......Dr.Friz talked to Darren yesterday and she has agreed to take Ajax (which means we would turn him over to her), but I don't want to live with the possiblity of him living the rest of his life at an Italian shelter (although she does take great care of all her shelter animals).
I know this may confuse some of you as it is hard for me to fully explain everything.
Reagan we feel will have no problem finding a home, as we placed him in the paper about 3 weeks ago and received 5 calls on him, this after one of the Security guys telling us he wanted him, so we had to turn away the calls. Now the security guy is leaving a year early from here, which means he will be leaving in 6 months and has to remain living in the barracks so now he can't take Reagan
He and Ajax go back into the base paper this coming Friday. However if anybody is looking for a very sweet loving gal like Gidget she is available to the right home....She is now 16 months old (almost) and is spayed, she is a bit of a wild child (she has a crazy like behavior that is funny and unexplainable)....She does need obedience training, but she is housebroken and kennel trained and gets along great with other dogs/cats....She tends to be a little vocal when playing, she likes to grunt
Ajax is an Maremmano Abruzzese mix, but looks like a purebreed and has behaves that way as well, he is a bit on the larger side, he is very gentle and knows some basic commands. He is neutered and current on all shots....He does well with other dogs/cats, but would do better to be in a smaller dog home or to be the only dog.
any dogs to be shipped will have kennel, and flight cost paid for, and will be current on all shots. Please if you know anybody PM me as soon as you can........I can post pics if anybody is interested.
Sorry for posting this here, but it wasn't exactly a classified it was also an explanation (sort of).
Thanks for any help!!! I wouldn't ask if we didn't need it!!
P.S. Reagan is about 9 months old and Ajax is about 11 months old.
